Grandeur of the Seas Returns to Service

Grandeur of the Seas leaves dry dock in Freeport on Tuesday (July 9, 2013) showing the stern area repaired from the May fire damage.
With repairs completed from its May 27 fire, Grandeur of the Seas returned to Baltimore yesterday, its year round home port.

After the early morning fire, Grandeur sailed under its own power to Freeport where passengers disembarked and were flown home. Repairs have been underway since at the Grand Bahama Shipyard at Freeport. No cause of the blaze has ever been released.

Grandeur left Freeport on Tuesday. The ship is hosting a one cruise for travel agents from Baltimore tonight.

Her first passengers will board on Friday (July 12, 2013) as scheduled.
